It's been a long road but it looks like we may soon see Asus' EeePC keyboard.
Word on the street is that Asus' Eee Keyboard could start shipping at the end of this month. The price is projected to be somewhere between $400 and $600.
We saw this nifty little nettop at CES 2009. Originally scheduled for a June '09 launch, there's been so many delays since then that we've lost track of the device numerous times. Despite all that, we're still excited about seeing this device hit shelves. Packing an entire computer into just a keyboard, the device has been hailed as a great solution for those looking for a compact and discrete HTPC.
The Eee Keyboard will come in two flavors, one with wireless HDMI and one with wired HDMI. It runs on Intel's Atom processor (1.6GHz), packs 1GB of RAM, the option for either a 16GB or 31GB SSD and replaces the numeric pad that usually lies to the right with a 5-inch touchscreen.
